Let’s get one thing straight, electronics designers are not paid to draw component symbols and footprints all day. Ideally, one would be able to obtain ready-made symbol & footprint for all the components he or she ever needed to use and drop them directly on the design. However, the reality is even though there are a great deal of verified library components on the web for download, there will always be a quite a few component symbols or footprints that you need to create by yourself.
2018, another productive year for fellow electro-mechanical engineers. Thanks to your feedback and the SOLIDWORKS dev team, SOLIDWORKS’ unique ECAD-MCAD collaborative PCB design tools have evolved, boosting your productivity to a new level while saving time and money.
Collaboration is an important part of the design process, but it’s not always as good as it could be. Sometimes we see this situation with teams that work on products with embedded electrical content – where the workflow between mechanical and electrical engineers is critical. One way we’ve seen customers improve in this area is by streamlining their processes with SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
Are you interested in shaving time and money off your development costs? SOLIDWORKS PCB makes component selection simple through real-time Supplier Links. These provide accurate part parameters, data sheets, pricing and stock information to help you make the best selection.
With the help of SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector, MCAD and ECAD design teams can now work together effectively with a single reference for product design. The Connector provides a managed environment for seamless collaboration between SOLIDWORKS PCB and SOLIDWORKS.
Did you know that SOLIDWORKS has a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) program? Indeed they do! SOLIDWORKS PCB is a set of tools engineered to bridge the gap between mechanical and electrical designs. With its simple to use interface and link to SOLIDWORKS, it gives the user an efficient design experience that gets PCB’s done quickly and easily.
